    The 2008 Coalfield basketball camp hit the road this year. With construction and work being done at Coalfield School, camp director Carmen Hines had to change the game plan and was able to move the camp to Petros-Joyner School.

    "We had to move it out to P.J., so we were dealing with some smaller circumstances as far as room and stuff. I'm thankful to all of them down at Petros-Joyner. Mr. Treece and Miss Julie really helped me out a lot so I could pull it off and have camp there," said Hines.
